Native Architecture: Sustainable Design Theory Applied to Affordable Housing in a Rural Setting
More InformationShow full item record
This project will seek a holistic and sustainable solution to rural housing and community design. The community of Cannonball will be the subject of this design study. Implementation of principles of sustainability will be essential to the final design solution. Quality, meaningful design must be more than functional and beautiful, it must also be a solution native to its context. To achieve this end an in depth analysis of the cultural, economic, and environmental systems is essential. This project will seek to define a notion of progress specific for the community of Cannonball and achieve that notion through effective design.
